Bowyer makes backroom appointments

Rovers manager Gary Bowyer has made three 'additions' to his coaching staff ahead of the new season.

Having joined Bowyer in his emergency fire-fighting role from the Academy set up last season, both Terry McPhillips and Tony Grant have made the official step up to the first team ahead of the new campaign with McPhillips rubberstamped as the teams assistant manager.

Furthermore Eric Kinder, who is a former youth coach at Rover, joins the club from Carlisle United where has formed an excellent reputation for himself as a development coach. He has also had the benefit of working with the Rovers boss in the past.

Happy with the three appointments, Bowyer told the official website - "I am delighted to have Terry and Tony with me again because they played a massive part in what we did last season in keeping the club up.

"They are both very hard working and share the same values as myself. They look forward to pushing the club forward and are determined to make this a success.

"It is important that you try and get people who care about the club or have an affiliation with it, and Eric certainly has that. He was here when I arrived nine years ago and we have always remained in touch.

"It is a very good appointment for us, because Carlisle have produced a number of players through Eric`s youth team and whilst I`m sure they`ll be sad to see him go, we are delighted to have him on board."

Welcome aboard chaps.

Good to see GB getting his own men in. More power to his elbow.
